TGIF, 2/3/12 Edition

February is my birthday month and in just a few short weeks, I'll be another year older. Another year closer to 30.
Am I the only one who does a lot of reflection around birthday time?

Oh, who am I kidding, I reflect all the time. I reflect uh lot. I'm in my own head even more than Angela Chase.
So much reflection means so much over-thinking on my part, you know those thoughts that we're all subject to:
--Why did that relationship end that way?
--What could I have done differently at that job?
--Why don't ___ and I hang out more?
--Should I have worked harder in school?
--Why haven't I been to the gym in so long?
--Where is this blog going? How can I advance it to where I want it to be?
--What is my next move?
(insert your own particular neurotic thoughts here)

So, I've decided to make a personal 28th-birthday-promise:
To stop being so damn hard on myself.
To forget  this person or that person who caused so much sadness or grief.
To show the world that I'm pretty spectacular and funny and clever and cute (okay, maybe I'm not that bold...yet).

To celebrate this resolution of sorts, I'm getting my hair did today, getting back to the gym, and treating myself to the best life possible. To 28 and all that follows.

Happy Friday, everyone.
Thanks for reading and for making each day a little brighter with your comments, emails, and support.


  1. Happy 28th b-day month!! I relate to your post a lot...need to make that promise to myself too! Take care, Caroline

  2. YAY!
    I love this birthday present to yourself. The hair and the gym and all of that, yes, but mostly the plan to go ahead and shine.

    Happy Birth month.


  3. good for you! that's sounds like what you should be doing. I am getting my hair done tomorrow. Time for a change.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
